Poroshenko approved the law on renaming of church


Changes in the law adhere to the principle of freedom of worship and equality of all faiths, the president claims. The president Petro Poroshenko on Saturday, December 22, signed the law which obliges Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow patriarchy to specify belonging to the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) in the name. It is said in the statement of the press service of the president. "The president Petro Poroshenko signed the law of Ukraine On introduction of amendments to the law of Ukraine On freedom of worship and the religious organizations concerning the name of the religious organizations which are included into structure (is a part) of the religious organization which leading center is outside Ukraine...", - it is said in the statement. "People have constitutional right of the free choice of religion. The specified changes in the law create the best conditions for realization of such right for those who will decide to what orthodox jurisdiction to belong... Or in again Autocephalous Orthodox Church of Ukraine, or in that church which insists on preservation of the communication and dependence on ROC", - подчеркнулпрезидент, signing the law. Poroshenko said that "it is easier to make the choice when all things are called by the names when there are enough data in order that voluntarily to accept it. Implementation of the law will give to citizens all completeness of information". According to the president, changes in the law adhere to the principle of freedom of worship and equality of all faiths, no restriction of constitutional rights of citizens will exist. Thus Poroshenko ignored the appeal of Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate) with a request to veto Rada's decision. As it was reported, Rada obliged Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate) to specify belonging to the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) in the name. The Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate) said that to change the name of church it will be problematic as it is registered in Ukraine, but not in Russia.
